So, how did I do? Well…
After only 28 days of keeping this blog, I must say I am feeling the results. Sure, I haven’t decreased in mass to any significant degree, but I know that my attempts at getting healthy are having their effect. I can now run up the stairs to my house without passing out (FYI: I have a pretty serious heart condition, so if anyone sees my boyfriend, I NEVER RUN UP STAIRS, because that would be risky and dumb. You follow me?) I can also walk up the hill to the grocery store without getting winded. These are significant improvements to my everyday existence.
The most significant improvement is simply that I am no longer afraid of actually seeing myself. It sounds ludicrous, I know, but it’s honestly how I’ve been living for years – total avoidance. But now, I can look at the photos I take, many of which are absolutely terrible, without flinching. I identify completely with the person in the picture and I am okay with that.
Anyway, I’d like to thank all of you who have been reading this blog and lending me your support. This has been kind of terrifying and strange, but you’ve been really super awesome with all your… awesome. If you were standing right here, I would give you a crazy hug. Animal style.
More to come.
